Welcome! Here you can find links to various things that I'm interested in or working on at the moment.

My blog is here, but I'm far more likely to add things to my wiki than to blog about them. The recent changes page is a quick way to find out what I'm up to.

I spend most of my spare time at The Apache Software Foundation, where I'm a committer on the Struts, MyFaces Shale, Maven, and Tiles projects as well as a member of the foundation.

I can usually be found on Google Talk, on IRC at Freenode and Codehaus, or by email at wsmoak /at/ apache.org. If I'm not online, I'm probably at the barn with Patrick, my Irish sport horse.

In what seems like a past life, I did a bit of photography, the evidence of which is still available in a couple of places. I also have a flickr account, but nothing much is on it yet.
